One way to give someone directions is to tell them to go three blocks East and five blocks South. Another way to give directions is to point and say “Go a half mile in that direction.” Polar graphing is like the second method of giving directions. Each point is determined by a distance and an angle. θ Initial ray r A polar coordinate pair determines the location of a point. ( 29 , r θ
